There is little change to note in regard to the affairs of 
the Almshouse. We have the past year added a water supply- 
to the farm by putting in a wind-mill on the land of the 
Town near the Almshouse, which furnishes a never-failing 
supply of pure spring water, and is a great convenience, as it 
has been necessary in years past to cart water in the dry 
season for the use of the house. In the Report of the State 
Board of Charities our Almshouse is reported as A No. 1 in 
all respects, and is certainly a good home for our poor. 

The inmates at present are most of them quite young, or 
so aged as to need almost constant care. There as twelve 
children under ten years of age, and there should be homes 
provided for some of them away from the Almshouse the 
present season. 

The relief out of the Almshouse has been large, and is 
caused in a great measure by having a number of large 
families of children to provide for whom we did not think 
best to take to the Almshouse, as many of them will soon be 
able to provide for themselves ; the bills at the Insane Hos- 
pitals have also been larger than usual. The sum of $664 
which has been paid out by this department will be reim- 
bursed by other cities and towns. 

We have provided for 839 tramps during the year, many 
of whom seem to be respectable men looking for work ; but 
as a class they are a bad lot, and disagreeable to have any- 
thing to do with.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department. 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen i 

Gentlemen, — In compliance with the Regulations of t^G" 
Fire Deparment, I have the honor to render the following 
Report, and submit such recommendations as will meet the 
present requirements of this service. 

The Department consists of one third-class steam fire- 
engine, and one horse hose-carriage ; one hand-engine, with 
hose-carriage ; 2900 feet of hose in good condition ; ladders, 
hooks, and ropes, at each engine-house. 

The Board of Engineers consists of five members. There 
are sixteen men connected with the Steamer Company, and 
forty-five men connected with the Shawshin Company. 

During the past year we have put a Steam-heating apparatus 
into the new Engine-house, which has thus far given entire 
satisfaction. 

We have also purchased 1100 feet of new Cotton Rubber- 
lined hose, the Department now being well supplied. 

There have been during the year twelve alarms of fire, as 
follows :

Feb. 17,1884. C. L. Carter's building, ) Insurance 

John J. Brown's, " } paid, $12687 25 
March 20, 1884. Tyer Rubber Co.'s Factory.

ance paid, 30 00

Oct. 22, 1884. James C. Abbott, wood lot. No 

insurance. 
Jan. 7,1885. Jcre. Millett's house. Insurance paid, 50 00 
Total insurance paid, 123234 93 

Value of buildings, $21650 00 

Value of contents, 34025 00 

Total value of buildings and contents, $55675 00 

I would especially call your attention to the insufficient 
supply of water. There are many places in Town at which, 
in case of fire, it would be impossible for the department 
to render any assistance, and I deem it exceedingly important 
that the Town should take some" action towards securing a 
supply of water for fire purposes. 

We have examined and ascertained the capacity of all the 
reservoirs in Town, a report of which I submit for your 
inspection.

During the past year we have effected temporary arrange- 
ments for a Ladder Truck. Our late experiences have forci- 
bly demonstiated the fact that the Town should purchase a 
light Truck without delay. 

There is ample room in the new Engine-house for stabling 
horses, and should the Town deem it advisable to purchase 
horses to be used on the Highways, they could also be used 
to good advantage in this Department. 

I also believe it advisable for the Town to purchase a new 
Engine for the Ballard Vale district, and would recommend 
the subject for your consideration. 

I would recommend that 82000 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year.

Report of Cemetery Committee 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, together with the receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 2, 1885. 

During the year the face- wall on the west side of the 
Cemetery has been extended twelve rods, and the avenues 
between the lots as laid out on the plan enlargement have 
been graded. General needed work about the Cemetery has 
also been done as the means at hand would allow. 

It is very desirable that the face-wall should be extended 
on the southwestern side of the premises about twenty-five 
rods, ample material being furnished within the Cemetery 
limits. It is also necessary to grade the avenues with hard 
gravel, suitable for the purpose. We therefore respectfully 
ask an appropriation of $300, together with the avails of lots 
sold during the ensuing year.

Thirteenth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall. 



Nothing of special interest in the history of the Library 
has occurred during the past year. With the exception of 
the frescoing of the Reading-room, which has much improved 
its appearance, and the construction of two new show-cases 
in the upper hall, no changes have been made. 

We would call the special attention of all who are in- 
terested in preserving the history of the Town to the existence 
of these show-cases. They are for the preservation and ex- 
hibition of objects of various kinds which are in any way 
illustrative of the past of Andover. They will contain, in 
fact, the nucleus of a museum, small indeed, but not on that 
account, to be despised. We, of this generation, are still 
comparatively near the beginnings of the history of the Town, 
and objects which would be valuable, if brought together, 
are continually passing out of existence as rubbish, or into 
oblivion. It is therefore important that there should be a 
place where these may be collected, and where all the story 
they have to tell may be carefully preserved. Many speci- 
mens of Indian weapons and utensils have been found on 
Andover soil ; and there is no way in which a collection of 
such articles could more certainly be made useful to the 
community, and tributary to the grateful remembrance of 
the donor, than by placing them in a museum of this kind. 
Thero are probably many papers in private families which 



67 

would be valuable as illustrations of by-gone customs, were 
they where they could be seen. There are also relics of the 
wars through which our nation has passed, which are of the 
greatest interest to those who are growing up to inherit our 
traditions, and which will increase in value as time goes an. 
It is also desirable that we should have as large a collection 
as possible of the animals and birds of this region ; and all 
rare specimens will be welcomed and preserved, together 
with the names of the donors. The larger such a collection 
becomes the more interest there will be in adding to it. But 
the greatest honor is due to those who help it in the day of 
small things. 

The annual examination of the Library shows it to be in 
good condition.

Town Clerk's Report. 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : 

Gentlemen, — I present to you my Report for the Year 
1884. 

" Facts about life and death have a perpetual interest and 
a horrid sort of charm for the average reader. Some recent 
data in this direction have just been made. They show that 
in this world there is an average of 70 births a minute, of 
100,000 births a day, and 36,7 92,000 births a year. There is 
an average of 67 deaths a minute, of 97,790 deaths a day, 
and of 35,639,835 deaths a year. There are 2010 more 
births than deaths every day. There are more males than 
females born." 

The Vital Statistics are as follows :
